Wife of the outgoing Oyo State governor, Dr Florence Ajimobi has assured the people of the State that the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the state will bounce back from its defeat in the last elections and reclaim power from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 2023.
She stated this while giving what could be described as her valedictory speech at the April edition of the quarterly prayer rally organized by the Women Intercessory Network (WIN) in Ibadan at the weekend.
Mrs Ajimobi, who stated that God destined the Governor-Elect, Seyi Makinde, of the PDP to take over from her husband, said: “We are very proud, WIN is devoid of any political party affiliation. I am the wife of the governor of Oyo state and my husband is an APC member but this is not a political ground. We are here to pray for the government of Oyo state and for our nation at large.
“I want to implore our women, like I have said earlier that they should make sure they bring every woman here so that we will continue to pray for the administration of the incoming governor.
“But that doesn’t make me less an APC member, we are coming back in 2023 by the grace of God and on this ground that God has continued to answer prayers, APC is going to come back in Jesus name.”
She disclosed that it was the aggressive, consistent and effectual prayers of the people, especially women that assisted the administration of her husband to effectively restore peace into the state.
“Any group dreaming of taking back the state to backwardness should be regarded as agents of violence. They would be visited by the wrath of God. I am not cursing but our desire for this state is peace and progress which we are leaving behind,” the outgoing First Lady further warned.
